Being an avid user of Snapchat, I've been more hooked to the lenses feature than I can admit. I mean, where else can you justify sending distorted faces of yourself to friends and not look silly?
Given any social media app, the company will always find ways to monetise their platform. In this case, Snapchat has been doing it through sponsored lenses. Don't get me wrong. It is a win-win situation - brands get to advertise themselves and users get to continue having fun with lenses. There is a growing popularity for sponsored lenses and more brands are catching up to it.
With that being said, I was browsing through the different lenses Snapchat currently has when a new sponsored lens for the upcoming Batman v Superman movie came up.
Of course, naturally, I was having fun raising my eyebrows to activate the special effects when it occurred to me... Wouldn't it be cool if I could speak in Batman's voice as well?
I'm surprised that they haven't came up with a new voice alteration technology that can change a user's voice when posting these videos up. There's so much you can do. For instance, just imagine promoting for new Pitch Perfect movie. With an auto-tune voice alteration feature, we can all be singers.
Maybe this would be the next big thing. I know I wouldn't mind having Morgan Freeman's voice for 10 seconds.
